Thanks Evad, Nice to know there are more of us out there!
If he was coming from a greater distance it would be more understandable, but it is really very close. It was one of those times when your expecting someone any second, so cant relax or get started into something else, as you said.
Hopefully the message got through this time, it is not the first.
Kip is like me, to the minute or texts if he is going to be even 10 minutes late, not because I make him, but because that is the way he is too. He is amazingly punctual even if travelling from much further away, he lives about 30 minutes away but is often coming from work meetings, well over an hour drive.That's a funny, to measure distance by time. Not 27 miles but 30 minutes.
The one time Kip and Prof met, Prof was 45 minutes late, no text. Kip is still peeved about it.
I was re-reading the "John Cleese" accredited letter of sate of alerts, I think it is a hoot, peeved, slightly miffed, cancel the barbie!
Slightly miffed is a fabulous expression. Not angry, or even annoyed. just miffed.
